Nir Oz update

Lesser Grey Shrikes are very much in evidence now - several seen around Besor and this corker on our morning walk here at Nir Oz.

A nice Eastern Bonelli's Warbler too - the first of the season for me.

BCB numbers at Besor reached 61 a couple of days ago. They were very flighty and didn't settle for long - I suspect that they'll head off in the next few days.

Common enough in season but I love Red-backed Shrikes - such pretty birds.

I was able to sneak up on these Purple Swamphens - adult on the right and a young bird on the left, still with a black bill and shield.

 Yup, another Lesser Grey Shrike. . . .
